Can't believe the amount of replies I got from you all. Thank you so much. The link to state towing regulations was very helpful. Seems the general consensus is to get brakes
, so it's decided. Like you say, can't shut the barn door after the horse has bolted, so best to get it done now before I really need it. I thought I would, but was arguing with my best friend who was adamant I just needed to do a test drive and see what it handled like. Now I can go "nah,nah, told you I needed them". Have to remember there are other people on the road other than myself. Looking forward to taking my time and enjoying the sights. Thanks again everyone for all the input. Greatly appreciated.
